Treatments to Get Rid of Nose to Mouth Lines

Dr Darren McKeown offers effective nasolabial fold filler in Glasgow from his aesthetic clinic

The lines that run from the nose to the mouth on your skin are known as nasolabial folds. For some people, nasolabial folds occur naturally as part of their facial structure. You will sometimes see them on young women and even children where they are often associated with strong cheekbones. In this case, they can represent a natural junction between the lip and the cheek.

For many others, however, these folds occur as part of the ageing process and get progressively deeper and more pronounced as the face ages and begins to sag. These lines, also known as smile lines, typically occur when smiling and is due to a loss of collagen.

We can get rid of these nose to mouth lines easily and effectively with hyaluronic acid nasolabial dermal fillers. These nasolabial fillers can give a softer, more youthful (but natural) look to ageing faces by restoring volume to these lines and wrinkles.

Reduce Nasolabial Folds ‘Naturally’ with Dermal Fillers

If you have nasolabial folds and want to get rid of them, the easiest way to get fast and effective results is by filling them with dermal fillers. Restoring elasticity to the face (and other parts of the body) using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is one of our most popular treatment options.

Our dermal filler treatment for nasolabial folds is designed to restore facial volume and fill the folds using hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers (Juvéderm). Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin, which makes it one of the more ‘natural’ methods.

Dermal fillers help you recover that perfect smile by restoring the natural facial contours with a few minor injections to the face. The simplicity of the procedure is what makes it one of our most popular treatments.

Juvéderm for Nasolabial Filler Treatments

We use Juvéderm for our nasolabial dermal filler treatments. Juvéderm is an excellent filler option for treating facial lines and wrinkles, recovering elasticity, and addressing the appearance of deep folds that occur as a result of ageing.

Our experts prefer using the Juvéderm Ultra and Vycross ranges of hyaluronic acid fillers for smoothing out and filling unwanted fine lines that run from the nose to the mouth, thus rejuvenating the skin to enhance your natural facial contours.

The results can last between 12 and 18 months, but the best time to receive your second round of dermal fillers is after at least 1 year.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Nose to Mouth Lines:

We offer several subtle and non-invasive treatments to address nose to mouth lines:

Cheek Fillers

As we age, we lose volume from the cheeks and the skin begins to sag. This can cause a deepening of the nasolabial folds. Correction of the volume loss in the cheek using dermal fillers can, therefore, often result in an improvement in the appearance of the nasolabial fold as a by-product.

Our experts can advise you on whether this is the right approach for you.

Nasolabial Fold Fillers

Adding hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to the fold itself can effectively reduce the depth of the wrinkle. When taking this approach, however, the amount added needs to be very, very conservative.

This is one of the procedures that inexperienced practitioners tend to get wrong because, although it is relatively easy when injecting fillers in a straight line, it is more difficult to judge when to stop and avoid over-treatment.

Surgical Treatments for Nose to Mouth Lines:

We also offer surgical procedures that can fight these signs of ageing on the face:

Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery is excellent for removing loose skin in the lower face and neck. However, this lifting procedure tends to have a limited effect on the nasolabial fold itself.

What to Expect from the Treatment?

The results of dermal fillers are generally a youthful appearance, but this is different for everyone because it depends on the depth of the facial folds.

The depth of your nasolabial folds determines whether you require a mild or intensive dermal filler treatment to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results. Depending on the depth of your lines and your skin type, we choose the injections best suited for you.

A mild treatment for nasolabial fillers can take anywhere from 30 minutes upwards.

After Care for Dermal Filler Treatments

The dermal filler treatment is a safe procedure with minimal side effects.

Once the dermal fillers are injected into the nasolabial folds, they can cause mild swelling, redness, and even some subtle bruising on the skin around the treated area. However, these effects fade away within a few days.
